Short Description: 
Eastern Sunz LIVE - TONIGHT!

How would it sound if Duke Ellington, Jerry Garcia, Sam Cooke, Kool Herc & Shinehead gathered 'round a firepit and jammed?

Award-winning hip-hop/music duo, Eastern Sunz, are the result of the jam session between legendary lyricists and musicians. Their lyrics and sound are unique to them, infusing well-known themes with Pacific NW backdrops, but also reminiscent of classic beats and rhythms.

Officially on the scene in 2001 with the release of their first album, you can hear the past decade in the increasing sophistication of their sound and see that growth in the awards earned, especially in the past year!

The Film Show

Thu, 05/10/2012

For this special membership drive edition of The Film Show, animator Bill Plympton and Alexia Anastasio discuss their upcoming visit to Portland to kick off the Great Northwest Film Tour, coordinated by the Oregon Media Production Association and McMenamins.  Alexia is the director of the documentary Adventures in Plymptoons, which follows the very independent and often anarchic career of Bill Plympton, leading up to the recent mayoral proclamation of May 26 as Bill Plympton Day.

Also in the studio is David Weissman, co-founder of the Queer Documentary Film Festival, the only U.S. festival of its kind, now celebrating its sixth year at its new home the Kennedy School.

As part of KBOO's Spring Membership Drive, a limited number of VIP passes to see Adventures in Plymptoons, with Bill and Alexia in attendance, will be available as thank-you gifts for your $60 pledge of support.
